Most Corrupt Countries: EFCC Slams TI For Rating Nigeria 146 Out Of 180




The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has reacted to the the 2019 Corruption Perception Index, CPI recently released by Transparency International, TI which ranked Nigeria 146 out of 180 countries analysed.

The EFCC angryly condemned the 2019 Corruption Perception Index list released by Transparency International saying it’s baseless.

“The Commission further faults the poor rating as baseless, and describes as appalling, the bogus and ambiguous criteria used by TI to arrive at what can best be described as a jaundiced and illogical rating.

We insist that the rating is a far cry from the evident strides and achievements so far accomplished by the anti-graft agency in the fight against corruption, particularly under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari,” EFCC says.

“The claim and inference that Nigeria ranks the fourth most corrupt country in West Africa is totally unacceptable, as it is evidently not supported by any empirical data, especially when placed side-by-side with the remarkable achievements of the Commission in the past years.

Moreover, it is quite ironic that the report by TI posits that the index does not show real incidences of corruption, yet it claims that the report is a reliable indication of the perception of Nigerians and the international community about the state of corruption in the country, he added”
